Introducing Your Instructor
Tanner Lagasca (Creative Director) studied at the Actors Studio Drama School in New York. His acting teachers and mentors included Elizabeth Kemp (He Knows Your Alone), Arthur Storch (The Exorcist) and Ellen Barkin (Drop Dead Gorgeous, Diner). They have been extremely influential in his way of teaching and his philosphy of acting. He believes in a truthful, honest approach to acting and that the job of the actor is to bring themselves to the character and to create the inner life of a character that is organic.

Spread the word
Actors Training Ground is still new to the community. Even though we've been offering year-round classes for 3 years we are still trying to reach out to the community to let them know we are here. Please spread the word about our classes to your friends and family. Word of mouth is all we have for marketing at the moment and your help would be greatly appreciated.
